THANATOS GARTH

Thanatos was probably one of the first games on the Spectrum to have a character that was larger than one sprite big. That was a couple of years back now and so it was probably due for re-release as a budget due to the success of Dragon Spirit.

Well Thanatos certainly hasn't dulled with age and is still a very nice piece of software thank you! Durell's old dragon has awoken and taken flight with the great graphics that made it sooo popular first time around. Unfortunately, the gameplay is now a little dated as we've moved on a wee bit from the up, down, and fire scenario onto the more complex type with option menus, shops, weapon choice and so on, but I think Thanatos is still worth a look at to see how good graphics were two years ago.

Thanatos the Dragon isn't quite the hot stuff he was.
